The Greatest Gift of All

Updated: Jan 3, 2022

Hey, you!

After yesterday's post (click here for the post), I thought I would lively things up a bit here. Not that I'm not thinking about the people back home, I am but I can't let it consume me. I hope you understand me.

Anyways, I wanted to share with you the birthday gifts I received this year. This post is in no way to brag, but it's almost Christmas and I know it's not always easy to buy gifts for people. So if I can inspire any one of you here that would be great.

A few posts ago (click here for the post), I shared with you my yearly Wishlist and turns out I received some things from the list and more. So without any further ado, here's what I got.

From my husband:

De'Longhi Dedica Espresso Machine -

From my in-laws:

Livoo Coffee Grinder - Click here

From my daughter (for the first year ever, she bought my birthday gift with her own money)

Arsène Lupin Gentleman Cambrioleur -

From my friends:

Heavenly Sweets US Chocolates and Candies -

Winter Fairy Tale Shower Gel (Vanilla and Macadamia - smells so good!)

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask (wanted this for soooo long!!) - Click here

Dominostein - this is a sweet sold during Christmas time and every year a friend (who introduced me to this treat) always gives me one pack. She gets it in Germany and apparently it's getting harder and harder to find!

My friends know how much of a foodie I am so I was also gifted with lots of chocolates, food specialties, and alcohol. This wine, in particular, is made in the region where I am currently living in France. The area is not known to make wine so I'm curious to try it.

So I guess this officially ends the birthday thread. Oh wait, tomorrow is my dad's birthday and I'm preparing a little something special (and I have a little anecdote to go with it). See you tomorrow, I guess?!

xoxo Elodie
